Organisation profile

In the School of Area Studies, History, Politics and Literature (SASHPL), we provide a supportive and personal research environment. We're a welcoming, collaborative academic community, with inspiring, expert staff.

Our research covers multiple disciplines and aligns with the University’s strategic research themes of democratic citizenship, health and wellbeing, sustainability and the environment, security and risk, and future and emerging technologies.

We're proud of our research culture, with a strong commitment to scholarship and publication in both the Centre for European and International Studies Research (CEISR) and the Centre for Studies in Literature (CSL), which inform all our teaching and business services. We're also home to the Citizenship, Race and Belonging Research Group, which explores who is considered to belong within the nation-state, and how ‘outsiders’ are perceived and treated.

Our research areas include:

  • English literature
  • History
  • Politics and international relations
  • Area studies
